J. Bruce McKissock, name shareholder of the disbanding litigation boutique McKissock & Hoffman, will join Marshall Dennehey Warner Coleman & Goggin by the end of the month. McKissock will join the firm as senior counsel on Oct. 1 and will be bringing with him McKissock & Hoffman of counsel Geraldine D. Zidow. He said he is unsure of what Zidow’s title will be at the new firm, and he said one other attorney from the firm might be joining Marshall Dennehey as well. When it became clear that McKissock could not follow his longtime partner Peter J. Hoffman to Eckert Seamans Cherin & Mellott because of conflicts, McKissock said he began looking at several options ranging from firms smaller than his own to large firms based in Pennsylvania. When McKissock & Hoffman announced that it would be dissolving by month’s end, Hoffman said it was difficult to be a litigation boutique of their size and he would be better off in a larger firm. McKissock said the cause of his firm’s breakup didn’t stop him from talking to smaller firms, but it made large firms more attractive. It was important for McKissock to join a firm that had a presence across the state to match where his practice often takes him. It was also important, he said, for the firm to have an office in Doylestown, where he lives, and in Philadelphia. Marshall Dennehey has all of that, he said. McKissock has a trial starting in Erie next year and will be able to use the firm’s office there. He will spend the majority of his time in the Philadelphia and Doylestown offices. For Marshall Dennehey, the firm is getting an aviation practice that they have been looking to add as well as additional commercial litigation work, McKissock said.
